Description andrew m. boardman 2004-04-23 20:15:10 UTC
[This is not actually a report against the finger package per se, but
it seems the closest applicable target and likely to reach the right

There's no finger-server package included with rhel-3.  I was under
the impression that it was going to be added in update 2, but it's not
in the beta for that, either.

Can this be added?

Hi, I'm the guy at MIT called the "Red Hat Enterprise Platform Coordinator".
It's my job to help make the way smooth for people at MIT using RHE.

This bug matters to MIT.
This bug was filed over a month ago, but still has received no attention.

I know that several packages originally deleted from RHE3 were added back in update 2.
Could someone PLEASE pick up this issue and at least give us the courtesy of a reply?

Thank you,

William Cattey

The finger-server will be included in the next upcoming quarterly
update for Redhat Enterprise Linux 3.

Thank you for your patience and my appologies for the long delay, it
had to go through PM and other management layers *sigh*.

Read ya, Phil

Thank you VERY much for your perseverance.  I appreciate how sometimes
stuff has to be pushed through many approving gates.

I don't see a finger-server package in the U3 beta.  Is it time to be
sad yet?

Comment 5 Phil Knirsch 2004-07-22 08:40:49 UTC
It is in our current RHEL3 U3 Beta tree from 07/15, maybe you have a
slightly older version.

Read ya, Phil

PS: If it doesn't show up in a newer tree for you, please let me know
and i'll escalate it again.

Just noticed this still hanging around; it's long since fixed with
finger-server-0.17-18.i386.rpm.  Thanks!

PS: I get an error trying to resolve this bug ("only the owner or submitter of
the bug [...] may change that", despite that I am in fact the submitter); feel
free to do so.

Alright, closing with ERRATA then. :)

Read ya, Phil
